Iranian Brigadier General Hossein Salami claims that U.S. sailors cried when they were captured.

But personally, I think Gen. Salami is full of baloney.

Via Times of Israel:

Ian’s supreme leader said divine forces had delivered American sailors into the hands of his country’s naval forces.

Meeting with the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy unit that took 10 US sailors captive when they strayed into Iranian waters on January 12, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei hailed the “courage” and “strong faith” of the unit, semi-state Iranian news site Fars reported on Sunday.

“You did an excellent job,” Khamenei told them. “Certainly, it was the divine job that sent the Americans straying into our territorial waters only to be promptly captured with their hands behind their heads.”

Iranian political and military leaders have repeatedly castigated the US over the incident, gloating about ostensible American panic, cowardice and lack of professionalism….

Brigadier General Hossein Salami, deputy commander of the IRGC, said “the marines were crying when they were being captured, but they later felt better after the IRGC forces treated them with kindness.”….
